Welcome to ALA - Rural Professionals online

The UK's premier independent inter-professional organisation since 1975



Agricultural Law Association

For almost 40 years, ALA has been the UK’s largest inter-professional organisation devoted to the business of the countryside. We focus on the law in a non-partisan, apolitical way in order to promote its knowledge, understanding and development among those who advise rural businesses.

CAP Conferences
Our Spring series of CAP Reform Conferences has now come to an end. Events in London, Bristol, Llandrindod Wells, Harrogate and Dunblane have been well acclaimed and enabled a wide range of delegates to see the coming reforms from our unique cross-discplinary perspective. Thanks to all who participated and attended. Keep visiting this site for more information on all relevant rural law matters.

Come and Join Us
Membership of ALA is open to any professional advising in rural business or any other person interested in the subject whose application is approved. The cost is a mere £80 per annum (equivalent to £1.54 per week).
